The graveyard of Rosedale Abbey church.

 

The turret staircase on the right is all that is left of the great medieval abbey-priory!

On the left is St Lawrence's Church. On the right, in front of the county primary school, built in 1822, is the remains of a turret staircase from the old Abbey (actually a Nun's Priory), the school is built of stone from the abbey. The turret staircase is all that is left of the great medieval abbey-priory! Rosedale Abbey was a Cistercian nunnery, founded in 1158.

 

St Lawrence's Church, Rosedale Abbey.

Don't forget to call in at St Lawrence's Church, Rosedale Abbey with traces of its medieval origins still visible. PLEASE leave a donation, even if its just buying the excellent little guide sheet to the church and help maintain this ancient and still working church. This was built as the Parish Church of St Mary and St Lawrence on the foundations of the priory chapel. However, the medieval church or priory chapel, was pulled down in 1839 and a larger church built on the same site.

Northdale, Rosedale

Northdale is a northern section branching of Rosedale itself (which runs north-west from Rosedale Abbey) and  is most readily accessed from the road (the section called Knott Road) down to Rosedale Abbey from the junction at Ralph's Cross on the Castleton to Hutton-le-Hole road.

Looking north-east, a view of the northern part of North Dale, Northdale Rigg in distant right of the picture. There are some pleasant tracks to explore in this part of Rosedale. In the foreground is the banks of an old reservoir, still full of water, from some past industrial use. On the right is the spread of buildings of Northdale Farm.

 

There are spoil heaps and signs of industrial excavation by the side of Knott Road - from ironstone mining?

 

Looking north-east towards Broom Hill, Northdale Head House and West Northdale Farm, Rosedale.

 

 

Looking south-east across North Dale, Rosedale.

 

You can walk around and through North Dale and end up by the War Memorial above Rosedale Abbey with great views of Rosedale itself.

 

The countryside of Rosedale to the west of North Dale, shot from the road up to Ralph's Cross, about half-way up you can start the walk into North Dale (which is out of sight to the right of these scenes).

There are several campsites in Rosedale and all in lovely locations even if the caravans are not a pretty sight themselves.
